Spanish Medical Interpreter (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – August 16, 2018
As an interpreted we get called to assist with the communication between the staff/providers with families. I learn about family dynamics and clinical content. The staff is very welcoming and very professional.
Classroom Aide (Former Employee) – New Britain, CT – August 3, 2018
Without a doubt the worst job I’ve ever had. Wish I could get back every minute I wasted working here. Management picks and chooses favorites. Turnover rate is incredibly high, coworkers will often “dissapear” over the weekend and never return because they were fired. Meanwhile the new replacement would start the same week. Absolutely no job security or employee loyalty here. Don’t waste your time, Education, and patience with this place.
Fake coworkers, management picks favorites, broken promises from admin, no advancement, high turnover.
Starting as a temp and later securing a full-time job, I saw how committed the staff was to the children and families. It's the kind of conviction and commitment you'd like to see in every job you have.
Medical Assistant (ENT) (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – June 20, 2018
Their employees are part of a team more like a family. We work together on our mission to make all the kids in ct as healthy and be there best self. We pride in helping all kids no matter the age and their families
CT Children's is where I have held a number of nursing roles over my career. As a passionate pediatric nurse I was able to realize an exceptional level of knowledge, expertise and excellent patient care. I have taught, mentored and grown a great number of newly graduated and newly hired nurses, especially in the critical care areas. As in any institution, there are individuals who enhance your work environment and there are those who have a negative impact. I have observed both not only personally but with other members of the hospital team. It speaks to the integrity of the overall culture of patient safety and patient/family experience that I have remained employed at CT Children's for since its inception in 1996.
no cost parking, remarkable growth within and extending across the state, high standards of care and transparency with adverse events, great number of talented and dedicated MDs, RNs and other interdisciplinary caregivers.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – February 20, 2018
Working at CCMC is very stressful. I say this because we work with very sick children so there is times you take this home with you. You will be expected to work 12 hour shifts and work every other weekend rotating days and nights. If you have to work in a team it will be stressful because not everyone is on the same page most of the time. The benefits and pay are good and job security. Besides that I would not recommend this place. Favortism is a HUGE thing here.
Good pay and benefits
Too much favortism, too many hours, poor management
Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – January 24, 2018
I would not recommend any minorities to work here. Discriminative against Hispanics. They speak to you and treat is as if you are beneath them. POOR management and HR sucks !!! Work overload and expects you to work a like a robot. Very discriminative against young adults. No chance of moving up and no chance of staying if the manager or providers do not like something about you. Don’t waste your time !
Mind your business and stay looking for opportunities

Everyone here is just doing the best they can given the limited amount of resources they have to get the jobs required of them, finished. Management could be better at listening to things going on with their employees rather than building a base of yes men supervisor types, but management follows the procedures as HR outlines, mostly. This is a good place to work, and I really enjoy the relationships with my peers that I have here. Everyone that works together pretty regularly likes each other fairly well, and has generally a similar view of the management teams regardless of department.
